Functional and contemporary, this modern chalet in central Greece takes full advantage of its stunning natural environment.
The archaeological site of the plain of Delphi is just a stone’s throw away. You can see both Delphi and the nearby picturesque village through the large openings of the chalet. The unique, privileged location of CH1 makes it the ideal holiday home. 360 Concept Design Studio by Alexandros Tsikordanos conceived it and designed it as such.
Geometry and simplicity are the backbone of the interior design concept for CH1. Local natural materials that abound in the area, are widely used in all spaces of the chalet. Stone and wood were put in place in their most natural form, without any special treatments, so that the outdoors pass in a way inside, creating a completely natural look. Colors and textures are in harmony with the surrounding mountainous landscape. According to Alexandros Tsikordanos: “For us, nature has always been a source of inspiration, taking into account the specific context of a project. In this case we wanted to create a holiday home, a personal retreat that would blend seamlessly with the surrounding forest”.
The chalet spreads over three levels. The ground floor houses the dining room, the kitchen and the living area with the luscious fireplace as the focal point. All bedrooms are on the upper level, while the lower one is where the guestrooms and the sauna are located. Is there a place for contemporary design in a chalet or everything has to be on the traditional side? Alexandros Tsikordanos certainly believes that “contemporary” doesn’t mean only “urban”, so modern design is evident in all spaces. Lighting also has played a crucial part in the overall aesthetics of the chalet. Lighting designer Athanasios Danilof has successfully studied ways to highlight the unique textures of natural materials – like stone – that are widely used in the chalet.
